If Tarzan Were a Dog…

… He’d be this dog, Coco. Look at him scoot up and down the tree! Obviously loving it.

But I remember a dog on our street, Toby, a black cocker spaniel, who ran full-tilt up a tree while chasing a squirrel–and suddenly realized he couldn’t get  back down. His cries for help were piteous. They brought out Bobby R. with a ladder, who fetched Toby safely back to terra firma. The poor dog never went anywhere near that tree afterward.

  1. I have actually seen dogs run up trees, and it blew my mind. One was a neighbor’s dog, and he wasn’t even after a squirrel. He just seemed to need something exciting. He always managed to get down by himself.
